the issues. i think it will help us avoid future debt ceiling crises if we know we got some manageable plan and each side has staked out a commonality, no doubt,nd i think we'll move forward. you know, until the senate actually gets in the game i happen and i do think that's people. i commend you very much. balance of my time. >> thank you very much, mr.>> thank you, mr. chairman. mr. chairman, you talked at the very beginning of your remarks about a deliberate tif process, how important that was. and mr. ryan talked about regular order. we're all for that, but we're beginning not with a deliberative process and this is not regular order. this is not the product of a deliberation in the ways and means committee and hearings and markups. this really is kind of a back room deal that -- i first read about it when you were on your retreat. so we begin on that note, and i think one way to avoid that characterization would be to agree to what mr. brady asked for is an open rule. i'd ask both of you, mrs. miller, mr. ryan, whether or not you would favor an open rule here so we can have a deliberat
republicans briefed reporters on a vote on the debt ceiling. the house will vote wednesday on a measure that will occur -- extend the debt limit until may 19. included is a provision that if congress fails to pass a budget by april 15, lawmakers salaries will be held in escrow. this is 10 minutes. >> good afternoon. good evening. >> hard-working taxpayers understand that they have to balance their budgets from every week to every month. they also believe it's time for washington to balance its budget. over the last four years, house republicans have offered plans. our budget plans. we have done our budgets, but it's been nearly four years since the senate has done a budget. most americans believe if you don't do your job, you shouldn't get paid, that is the basis for no budget, no pay. it's time for the senate to act. chairman paul ryan has worked hard with the budget committee to outline the kind of reforms we would put in place to bring real fiscal responsibility here in washington. and the american people understand that you can't continue to spend money that you don't have. it's tim
, and for very good reason. if what they're say something we're not going to play debt ceiling leverage anymore, which has obviously been the president's position, that's good. my feeling is it's probably the latter. i think there are enough kind of economic grown-ups in the room to really control the folks who have threatened to use that kind of leverage. >> but the senate has not had a budget resolution pass through the senate in, what is it, four years now? >> april, 2009. >> that feels to me pretty shameful frankly. i don't know the politics and i'm not exactly sure why that's the case, but isn't that a critical step in bridging the gap and making progress on these issues where you can not go to these sort of extra legal things like using the debt ceiling as leverage, but you can use the process as it is intended to be used. >> i agree, and it's an interesting quid pro quo for the republicans to agree to the first three months of extension of the debt ceiling. >> and to hold their own pay hostage. we won't pay ourselves. >> even though i think the debt plays better outside and holds more le
and the debt ceiling or passing the american's jobs act to get americans back to work, that requires we the people and why the speech was so powerful on monday. it's not about me the government. he's not talking about the government, he's talking about citizens coming together and putting pressure on elected officials to do what's right to help our fellow citizens and i think that that is the unifying message that we all need to take away from monday. it wasn't necessarily a partisan speech, it was a progressive speech, that's true. >> a very liberal speech. >> he was a very american unifying message. >> kelly: angela. the final word. >> in his speech, the government is for the people, by the people. so she's right. we have the responsibility to state our grievances and we need call on members of congress and they're not doing what they're supposed to do, vote him out. >> kelly: and we thank you ladies for joining us and sharing your insights and perspective where things stand with the president being the unifier in chief or the divider in chief, but we, the people, should step up and t
cliff and onto the very important debate over whether and how and when to raise the debt ceiling, these are, it is a time of high tension. these are not people who get together often when. they do it is not easy, but everyone is playing a role today of high ceremony and giving it respect that it deserves. president obama is clearly, in a relaxed mood, enjoying, enjoying this, this occasion. you could see when he left to go back inside the capitol, i thought it was interesting to look a last look at the sea bodies down the mall and sort of drinking it in. it was interesting. he knows he has a few hours before it becomes the grueling combat again of governing and moving on to his ambitious agenda. shepard: certainly is ambitious is. wendell goler, it will be a tall hill to climb. first the matter of the signing of his choice for secretary of state and the rest. if you would, take us through that. >> reporter: caught us off-guard, shepard. we had to reach out and find out exactly what he was doing. that wasn't part of the usual inaugural ceremony. but as he has just taken the office
to hit the grund running again in his second term. the debt ceiling fight has been delayed and they are looming on the issue of the budget more specifically the sequester that comes up at the beginning of march. those are spending cuts in military and domestic agencies and the continuing resolution. basically it calls for how they will pay for the government going forward. after march 27th the budget issues are high on the priority list. there are challenges as he faces the republican house. he heard from paul ryan and dick durbin and their opinions on what the president needs to do going forward. >> the green line is historic tax rates, how much we raise in taxes and the blue is how many increases president obama is calling for. the red is where spending is going. spending is the problem, revenues are not the problem. if you keep chasing them they will hurt economic growth, shut down the economy and won't get the budget balanced. >> what i heard the president say was programs like social security and medicare and med aid critically important for our future and we need to h
are playing their version of let's make a deal over the debt ceiling. tomorrow the republican-controlled house expected to vote on a bill allowing the government to borrow money through may 18th. but they want something in return. chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel live in washington with the details. what is the latest? >> reporter: as part of raising the debt ceiling the house republicans will demand that the senate pass a budget with spending cuts included and will try to force getting it done by april 15th. a short time ago the top senate republican issued this call to action. >> and so it's my hope that the president will finally be willing to do what republicans have been asking him to do since his first inauguration four years ago and that is to work with us on identifying durable solutions to the problems that we can only solve together. to put aside those things we know we can't agree on and focus on what we can agree on. and we should start with spending and debt. because if we don't get a handle on that nothing else matters. >> reporter: bottom line republicans recognize
of tomorrow's voigte on the debt ceiling. is congressman mccarthy, i promoted you earlier. welcome back. >> thanks for having me. >> sean: and going back to the issue, we played it it, that's all that he said about the economy, 8.3 fewer americans are working today than there were four years ago, what is your reaction to that? >> well, just shows you how out of touch eghe is. normally when the president is reelected, remember, no landslide. you work together, find common ground and work ford. this person's goal is to break the republican party. he's out of touch where america is at and it's more of a speech after progressive party agenda not something for all of america to get behind. >> sean: how ironic, too, the president lecturing the americans on tone and did you remember of talking about mitt romney and a steel worker's wife? >> and when you work on a president's speech in the inaugural, you usually have a take away line. what is the take away line. normally when the election is over, it's time to govern, he moved the campaign committee going when he can't run for further office. t
months into question. this week the republican party put forward a plan on the debt ceiling in debt and appears to have won the support of both the president and senate majority leader. the republican change in direction and tone was not matched by a change in the republican party's lead. the rnc reelected the chairman after losing both the white house and ten seats in congress to democrats in that 2012 election. his job as head of the national party even as lenient -- louisiana's popular governor and from a republican both cried out for the party's revitalization, new ideas, and the voices. obama administration stalwart treasury secretary gagger and secretary of state clinton bidding farewell to the administration. clinton finally this week testifying on benghazi, trying to explain away one of the administration's biggest failures. another week in which president obama has dispatched vice-president biden to campaign against the second amendment. the president's inaugural this week. next week he launches his campaign for comprehensive immigration reform. next week senator kerry to b
, martha, where they're cot delling together what could be a three-month extension of the debt ceiling to try to hammer out more spending cuts and coupled with chuck schumer, the man in charge of today's big inaugural event, more tax hikes. a lot of bruising to come as far as they settle this but they are a long way from settling it. martha: neil, that raises a bigger question. you look at the second term of fdr who dealt with obviously severe economic distress in this country. what happened was they relapsed. there is lot of concern if we do continue to raise taxes and small business owners who the president said are one of his priorities in the second term, but if their sense is their taxes are going higher, they will continue to pull in and get smaller and leaner and not hire i would imagine. so the big question is, where is the whole economy going to head if taxes are increased in other ways in this country? >> well you know the president spoke to quickly come back at the notion, if wall street is worried about this and companies are worried about this, investors are worried about
're going to do this at point a, point b, laterfore point c and the same thing with the debt ceiling. everything we do is temporary and this is especially with the gridlock between the republicans with a majority in the house and democrats in the senate. this doesn't, you know, excuse the president from sitting down and talking about the issues, but i don't feel that he's said, okay, these issues don't matter and i don't think they've been on the back burner, i think everyone is very clear with where the president stands as to what his ideas and the democratic philosophy is with regard to job creation, and what we need to do with the economy. the republicans are clear. congress needs to sit down and work this out. the president's not their baby sitter, not running a day care center and the american people need to make our congressional electorates and our senators that are elected, we need to make it known what we want. those are our priorities and by the way, heidi, yesterday, california lowest foreclosure rate in the month of january in years. and that's a step in the right directi
likely i'm going to have some republicans come with me. he was tough on the debt ceiling. he was tough on the fiscal showdown. when he got tough, boehner had to let some republicans go his way. i think he want unity. the path is being tough and being clear about what he wants to get done bp. >> if you look at lift, second terms have not worked out how most presidents think they will work out. something happens. president bush, the financial crisis. president clinton, the impeachment. >> this guy is awesome. >> stuff happens. clean it up. it's family show. george w. bush never mentioned terrorism. that was the topic that dominated his term. i re-eisenhower's second inaugur inaugural. the most important thing was to send troops into little rock. i think most of these presidents have no idea what they're about to encounter. >> outside events end up shaping the legacy and how they respond. the president's maximum political power and validation is right now in this moment and in the next year. the question is does he strike while the iron is hot an does he take to the tendency which will be
really hit the limit. the president has asked for a very large increase in the debt ceiling, and some in the administration have called for no limit at all. others in the administration and in the house are calling for congress to give up its authority to set the debt limit, rather amazing, thus giving the executive branch unilateral authority to borrow. this is not a good idea. if the federal government does not collect enough revenue to pay for all of its spending obligations, it must borrow to make up the shortfall. everybody knows that. we are borrowing about now 42 cents of every dollar we are obligated to spend. now, this is clearly, i think everybody would agree on either side of the aisle and the public, this is an unsustainable situation which will only get worse if we do not begin meaningful discussions over our spending priorities, including, including entitlement spending to strengthen and preserve those programs for future generations. the national debt is growing. everybody has seen that chart. about $16.4 trillion. the total public debt outstanding at the end of the thi
with me. he was tough on the debt ceiling, he was tough on the fiscal showdown. when he got tough, finally, bainer had to let republicans go his way. i think he wants unity, but the path to unity is not kumbaya, it's being tough and being clear about what he wants to get done for the country. >> second terms have not worked out how most presidents think they're going to work out. something happens, president bush the financial crisis, president clinton the impeachment. paul, another thing you said, the inaugural is another blueprint etched in sand? >> this guy's awesome. >> the great philosopher who first said, stuff happens. president bush, who ari served -- in his first inaugural never mentioned terrorism. that was the topic that dominated his term. i reread eisenhower's inaugural, he gave a stirring speech about the cold war and confronting communism. the most important thing he did in his second term was send troops into little rock. not into berlin, but little rock to enforce desegregation, he signed the first civil rights law since the civil war. he hardly spoke about that in the sec
. that has to change. [applause] now, the house won't consider another debt ceiling increase unless the senate passes a budget. and we're not going to just keep raising the debt ceiling. we're going to make a down payment on debt reduction, and we're going to point the country in the right direction, we're going to cut spending. [applause] you know, there will be times p when conservatives disagree on the way forward. we've never marched in lockstep. that's not what we do. a healthy debate is a good and needed thing. we can deliberate in private without fighting in public. all we should ask of each other is that we give an honest account of our actions and their reasons for them. we should challenge the left, not each other. and if we take the prudent course, you know what? we'll be in really good company. our founders were men of prudence. take james madison. nowadays we call him the founder, the father of the constitution. but at the constitutional convention, he lost some key arguments. you know, he fought the plan to give each state the same number of seats in the senate. he tho
the republicans over a barrel with the debt ceiling coming up with no time to announce any long-term balance budget framework or any kind of structural reforms to heanlt retirement programs. we had the short-term extension to give each chamber to go through order and pass a budget in our house. obviously, paul ryan and his team will work through, i think even a bolder budget to send to the senate. the senate and the president might not accept the bill we passed. but in fact, they are going to pass the bill and the president is going to sign it. as speaker boehner said, this is something the house should continue to do. we are in the opposition but we're in the majority but as the opposition we should take the opportunity to paint bold principles and stand by those and then we can campaign on those in the next two years. >> so, tom, you are a conservative. did you become conservative at some point, are you a natural born conservative? >> right from the beginning. i grew up in a very small town. my parents were not political at all. my father would not put up a yard sign until my campaign, tha
in spending cuts we can't lose those spending cuts. that was to pay for the last debt ceiling increase let alone any future increases. >> reporter: one of the nation's largest federal contractors, general dynamics based in fall's church, virginia, announced a $2 billion loss which it is blaming on defense cuts and falling government demand. >> draconian measures will have to be taken, furloughs, layoffs in the defense industry but most importantly to me, a devastating blow to our national security if the sequestration takes place. and it is up to congress and the president to act together and frankly so far i have not seen the kind of urgency that many of us feel about sequestration and, its implementation report so it seems with the war being wound down in afghanistan, the real fight begins at home for tighter bum jets. jamie? jamie: those civilians play an important role. thanks. jon: take a look at this. a brush with death for a guy on a motorcycle, when a big-rig truck flips over and nearly crushes him. jamie: whoa. jon: yeah, that amazing video, where it happened. we'll tell you about
. they are not happy about the way some of the budget negotiations have gone in the past. of course, the debt ceiling in that debate will be hanging over those hearings. john kerry coming in, nominee for secretary of state. as chris mentioned, hillary clinton will be testifying on capitol hill, both the house and senate leader on benghazi. a lot of lingering questions on now. finally coming you mentioned chuck hagel as well. a lot of questions for him and his stance towards iran and israel. he has already asked so many of those questions on the sidelines. certainly it is usual that the president gets picked a cabinet. it is certainly republicans will have their questions. megyn: just a little bit of information on the fashion on the president and first lady's daughters. malia obama is wearing a j. crew ensemble and sasha obama is wearing a kate spade ensemble. >> the ladies at home are with me and they care. hillary clinton has some new glasses which we should remark upon. we will talk about the first lady who also be wearing some j. crew a little bit later. it can go to j. crew and look at the first
're coming into it with bad feelings because the spending cuts and the debt ceiling, spending was pushed out of this big compromise that scared us with the word "cliff" that was somehow created by the media. where we stand today, the president hitting the note of we, the people, we have to work together seems to be somewhat of an effective flash point because people are there and see it nowhere more than on economic questions. so when we were asking people around the country what do you want to see? going together, almost like a couple were two ideas, one, you have to stop the left/right game. it's too much. we know that is your game but you must stop it and he seemed to respond to that. where they want to see that stop the most is on the creation of jobs. they condemn the stock market. that 'not where the country is. we're hurting and you'll see it. here's what people had to say about what they want the president to do, what he must do to succeed when it comes to the economy. ♪ >> i want to tell the president about the economy to stop spending money that we don't have. it's nice to want t
